This book offers a powerful antidote to the paralysis of
postcolonial intellectual life. It shows just how to make
sense of, and learn from, the extraordinary diversity of
cultures past and present. Tapping a wealth of
traditions, from the Hebrew Bible to the Bhagavad Gita,
the author crafts a new lens for examining other
cultures, and finding in the world-s myths--its sacred
stories--a way to talk about experiences shared across
time and space.Myths, she shows, bridge the cosmic and
the familiar, the personal and the abstract, the
theological and the political.

This book is Baru-s account of what it was like to
-manage- public opinion for Singh while giving us a
riveting look at Indian politics as it happened behind
the scenes. As Singh-s spin doctor and trusted aide for
four years, Baru observed up close Singh-s often troubled
relations with his ministers, his cautious equation with
Sonia Gandhi and how he handled the big crises from
managing the Left to pushing through the nuclear deal. In
this book the author tells all and draws for the first
time a revelatory picture of what it was like for Singh
to work in a government that had two centers of power.The
Accidental Prime Minister is one of the great insider
accounts of Indian political life and a superb portrait
of the Manmohan Singh era.

330.934 KAU 141032
This book seeks to highlight the monumental contribution
of Kautilya to economic thought. The Arthashastra
explicitly promotes the goals of both artha (material
well being) and dharma (righteous behavior) as a
consistent whole and repudiates any deviation from them.A
serious attempt is made here to revise the currently
accepted history of economic thought.It is also argued
that Kautilya-s The Arthashastra may be correctly
designated as Dharmanomics: economics built on an ethical
foundation, projecting economics and economic policy in a
more meaningful and socially desirable perspective. The
book also shows that the Hindu civilization is not averse
to economic growth.

332.153 BES 141073
This book traces an important shift in international
development policy as global institutions have become
preoccupied with policy failure. The author argues that
the changes in International Monetary Fund, World Bank
and donor policies in the 1990s, towards what some have
called the -Post-Washington Consensus,- were driven by an
erosion of expert authority and an increasing
preoccupation with policy failure. Failures such as the
Asian financial crisis and the decades of despair in sub-
Saharan Africa led these institutions to develop
governance strategies designed to avoid failure:
fostering country ownership, developing global standards,
managing risk and vulnerability and measuring results.

Analyzing the economic, demographic and ideological
context in which water policies are framed and
implemented, this book argues for an integrated framework
in formulating and implementing water policies in South
Asia. It also highlights some common missing links in the
national policies: problems of techno-centric and
blueprint approach to water management, growing influence
of international donor agencies and inadequate concern
for issues such as equity, sustainability, gender
sensitivity, accountability, regional diversity in
property rights regimes and water management practices,
and regional conflicts over water access.

recorded scam in the history of India. The book isn’t
just about the coal scam. It is also about working with
some of the biggest Indian politicians, starting with
chief ministers of Andhra Pradesh. It is about life in
the coal ministry with Mamata Banerjee, Shibu Soren and
Dr. Manmohan Singh, who was also the Prime Minister. It
is about the lessons learnt before Parakh met any of

The Knowledge : how to rebuild our world from scratch /
Lewis Dartnell.-- London: The Bodley Head, 2014.
341p , 23cm.
ISBN : 9781847922281.
500 DAR 141033
The author proposes that the key to preserving
civilization in an apocalyptic scenario is to provide a
quick start guide, adapted to cataclysmic circumstances.
The Knowledge describes many of the modern technologies
we employ, but first it explains the fundamentals upon
which they are built. He reveals the greatest invention of
them all-the phenomenal knowledge-generating machine that
is the scientific method itself. This would allow
survivors to learn technological advances not explicitly
explored in The Knowledge as well as things we have yet
to discover. The Knowledge is a brilliantly original
guide to the fundamentals of science and how it built our
modern world as well as a thought experiment about the
very idea of scientific knowledge itself.

This book explores the unique structure of the chawl, all
the while considering a complicated and interwoven set of
themes and questions. How is the chawl defined? What
makes it unique among the various building typologies
located throughout the city? How have cultural formations
emerged through the constraints imposed by such limited
living space? These are not easy questions to answer, but
this multi-genre book, with the help of an assemblage of
visuals-from floor plans, photographs and drawings-
attempts to consider the ways in which the chawl emerges
as a distinct symbol of the city of Mumbai, holding not
only the history of the city-s transformation but also
its unique social identity.

The book takes an integrated approach, using the
principles of story structure to discuss every aspect of
successful science writing. It first analyzes why some
stories are engaging and memorable while others are
quickly forgotten, and it proceeds to define the elements
of story structure and show how the structures scientists
and researchers use in papers and proposals fit into
classical models. It targets the internal structure of a
paper, explaining how to write professional sections,
paragraphs, and sentences clearly and compellingly. The
final section of the book deals with special challenges,
such as how to discuss research limitations and how to
write for the public.

This book considers the remarkable transformations that
have taken place in India since 1980, a period that began
with the assassination of the formidable Prime Minister
Indira Gandhi. Her death, and that of her son Rajiv seven
years later, marked the end of the Nehru-Gandhi era.
Although the country remains one of the few democracies
in the developing world, many of the policies instigated
by these earlier regimes have been swept away to make
room for dramatic alterations in the political, economic
and social landscape.
